Force India VJM07 - new front wing mounting / nose 21 June 2014

Force India have introduced a new front wing mounting (upper drawing) for Austria, with a more curved leading edge to the wing pillars. This means the connection to the front wing is over a larger area, which will create a stiffer wing mounting. The nose itself appears to be slightly different on the leading edge where the top surface rolls around into the lower surface. On the new version this looks like it is of a slightly smaller radius. This will help to get more airflow under the nose and the more forward pillars will allow that airflow to sweep outwards to the leading edge of the car's underfloor. Both these changes will improve overall underfloor downforce, giving the car more overall grip.
